positive:Everything. Great sharpness wide open and beautiful rendition of out-of-focus areas, which is the reason this lens has earned its legendary status.
negative:Some CA wide open, but quite well controlled.
comment:AF on LA-EA5 works very well with the usual noise from the lens gears and the sqeaky sounds from the LA-EA5. I was happy to find an original lens hood later, it deserves it.
